    Lee Svitak Dean is editor of the Taste section and supervises food stories, wine and restaurant coverage. She is author of “Come One, Come All/ Easy Entertaining With Seasonal Menus,” which is a collection of Taste recipes. Dean also is editor of the Sunday Variety Family page.

    From her website: I’m the longtime editor of the Taste section at the Star Tribune in Minneapolis, where I have been writing about food for almost three decades. Over the years, as I tested recipes and talked with readers — and cooked for my very hungry family — I realized that busy cooks would like to see recipes in menu form, to make it easier to plan for their time in the kitchen.

    One menu led to another and before long I had a book project in the works. Come One, Come All is the result of many years of testing recipes for the Taste section.

    Taste is an internationally acclaimed food section, with awards from the James Beard Foundation, the World Media Awards in Australia, and the Association of Food Journalists. Saveur magazine has called me one of the “unsung saviors of America’s local food scene.”
